forecast. >> bring you downtown right now, really nothing doing across central maryland. feels a little muggier out there in comparison to where we were last night, 74 at bwi, dew points up there at around 66, so things are looking good on the statistics. planner should remain pretty quiet other than maybe an isolated shower or thunderstorm well north of the city, i think we will see a blend of stars and clouds. 71 tomorrow morning when we wake up, a blend of sunshine and clouds, could be some patchy fog to the north of the city and then tomorrow going to be a muggy feel, 88 degrees will max out for your daytime high and scattered showers and thunderstorms could develop. not an all day washout type of deal but there could be a couple of those hit-and-miss showers and thunderstorms tomorrow afternoon. talk about that coming up. 85 today, that's what we maxed out to, 99 was set back in 1994 was 100 at noon. cooler to the north and west, upper 60s and 75 in chestertown
so uniformly into the 70s and dew point values starting to climb so, you know, pretty comfortable all weekend long, things are going to change by monday morning, you're going to feel that more soupy air mass that will be on top of us. this is maryland's most powerful weather radar, baltimore's most powerful radar for the entire state. things quiet. up to north and west, scattered showers and storms, maybe into york, dallas town you may deal with a scattered shower or thunderstorm tonight as the storm system moves off to the east. isolated situation. we are going to have to wait for some more storms that will fire up along the boundary, stationary boundary and more storms out to the north and west, that will head in our direction by tuesday. a soupy mess. dew points into the 70s, 60s up towards the north and where we do find the stationary boundary, this is going to be the focus for those scattered showers and thunderstorms both on monday and also for your day on tuesday. we do think, though, tuesday is going to be a little more active than monday. the reason being is this front that is situated over the great
lakes will die south and that's going to kind of enhance the rain chances, heavy rain situation for tuesday, clap or two of thunder, not expecting severe weather and then below average temperatures by the midweek, wait until you see the seven-day forecast. so tomorrow temperatures into the 80s, hit and miss scattered showers and thunderstorms but you notice futureradar trying to pick up on stronger storms that will enter the picture as we get into your day on tuesday. it's the tropical season, there has not been much activity. however, i have noticed there is a huge wave just off the west coast of africa. we are going to have to monitor this wave but the one problem i can see happening is there was a tremendous amount of dust and sand that's being blown off the sahara desert. that's why i don't think the development will be, well, pretty quick to happen over the central atlantic. we will watch it, though, this week and talk again around monday and tuesday. maryland's most accurate saying 69 tonight, patchy fog to develop, an ice late shower and -- isolated shower and thunderstorm. if you do get clear skies, may see a couple of shooting stars.
87 degrees for tomorrow, sunshine and clouds, muggy, maybe a thunderstorm. here's maryland's most accurate seven-day forecast. once we get through monday and tuesday's hit-and-miss showers and thunderstorms deal, it will be 81 by wednesday with overnight lows into the 50s. it is going to be beautiful by the midweek. but that's way below average. we should be into the middle 80s, we will be low 80s for daytime highs. going to be gorgeous. you can turn the ac off. we have to get through monday and tuesday. >> okay. we can do this. >> we can do it. >> we got it. >> that will be fine. new at 11:00 tonight, young athletes with the dreams of making it in the big leagues, we have heard so much about baseball, feeling the pressure to perform and the doping scandal shaking up the major league is causing concern. >> one young athlete with a famous name says he's chasing his dream the right way. adriana house talks with the other a rod. >> i play second base. >> reporter: a name on that for this high school athlete was a

of performance enhancing drugs, the florida high school athletic association recently asked its policy experts to look over existing policies to see if revisions were needed to further prevent the use of illegal substances among high school athletes. alex rodriguez says his strategy is clear. >> hard work, hard work, sweat, dedication, if you don't have it, then it's hard to make it. >> sounds like he's on the right track. we will be right back.
